Spinal block injections and CSF leaks
Could there be a problem with CSF leaks from having spinal block injections? And, if so, does it matter since I seem to have my CSF under control with Acetazolamide? Thank you.

Hi Anneal, these sorts of injections should be “epidural”, above the dural sac, if you will and shouldn’t lead to spinal leaks. Having said that, a not terribly uncommon unwanted side-effect can be an accidental nick of the dura, causing leaks. These usually self-seal, and it sounds like you are not experiencing a leak now. Yay! smile
